We’re often asked by clients if it’s easy, fast and convenient to get a COVID-19 test prior to their return to their home countries. The short answer is yes. In San Salvador, the capital city, there are dozens if not more labs that will run a COVID test for you. Most labs have antigen tests available, averaging about $30- USD with same-day result delivery, often in two hours or less. For destinations that require a PCR test they are also available at the larger labs, with 24 hour result time, for around $100- USD. In the major cities and towns you can at least find antigen testing available. Your hotel can often schedule in-hotel testing for your party.

There are a total of 159 labs certified for COVID-19 Antigen testing, the full list with addresses here:

In San Salvador for Antigen testing: (Most also provide PCR testing for $95-120 USD)

  1. Max Bloch LABS. $25, schedule an appointment is by visiting their website. Walk ins welcome.
  2. Analiza: the cost is $25 and you don’t need to schedule an appointment. To consult their locations and operation hours, please visit their website. Walk ins welcome.

The following hotels offer in-house testing, usually a lab visiting at a set hour every morning, check with the front desk:

Sheraton Presidente San Salvador

Barceló San Salvador

Crowne Plaza San Salvador

Holiday Inn San Salvador

Marriott Courtyard San Salvador

The following malls have testing sites: Estación del Casco, Plaza Villavicencio

Hospitals with available testing 24/7: Hospital de Diagnostico (both Escalon and Colonia Medica locations have 24/7 labs), Hospital de la Mujer. PCR Tests also available.

We also recommend all ANALIZA locations, all MAX BLOCH locations, PARAVIDA also has multiple locations in the city as they provide reliable testing with results in two hours or less. We’ve noticed many foreigners end up getting a test at ProFamilia Hospital, nothing wrong with that but it’s a longer drive since it’s not close to the hotels. 

Again these are just recommendations and we are a Real Estate Agency not affiliated with any of these labs.
